The Laramie Project, the second part of Theatrical Outfit’s season-launching double bill, opens Friday and runs in repertory with Our Town through September 29. The documentary theater piece from 2000 revisits Laramie, Wyoming, in the weeks and months after the murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard. A talkback follows Sunday’s Laramie Project performance. See both shows in a single day on September 19, 21, 22, 28 and 29.
Out of Hand Theater takes on gun violence in its latest hour-long, living-room show Conceal and Carry, which asks you to ride along with the revenge-seeking father (Lee Osorio) of a school-shooting victim. 8 p.m. Friday–Saturday and 5 p.m. Sunday through November 24 in private homes around the metro area. $34.66 (includes fees and post-performance drinks and snacks).
Dad’s Garage Theatre Company presents a change of pace with The Wrath of Con 2: Into Dorkness, an original scripted play that’s a sequel of sorts to its Wrath of Con (2012). Con 2 looks at nerds who must now deal with being part of mainstream culture instead of outside it. Through October 5. 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
